Home Detention with GPS Ankle Monitor

Electronic Monitoring Home Detention in California

Our Home Detention Electronic Monitoring Program use GPS technologies to monitor the movement of selected high, medium, and low-risk offenders until they successfully complete the monitoring program or until they reach expiration of their sentence.

Home detention involves being confined to your primary residence rather than going to jail. Seen as a more affordable alternative to traditional imprisonment, especially for less dangerous offenders, house arrest allows an enrollee to earn income, maintain family and other relationships, and attend necessary probation appointments and rehabilitation treatment. Home detention can also involve curfews, where an enrollee must be home by a certain hour, and when they are not permitted to go out in the dark. Home detention does not necessarily confine the enrollee to their homes for 24 hours every day, 7 days a week. In some cases, they may be permitted to go to work and school, attend religious services, and go to medical appointments. Home confinement can be more restraining, of course, depending on the specifics of the confinement and the infraction.

How Home Detention Works:
The enrollee wears an  Ankle Monitor to track their movements and detect whether they have unlawfully tried to leave the property or remove the device.  Our  electronic monitoring home detention solution with active GPS Ankle Monitor fully integrates with  advanced  tracking software ensuring continuous operation.

We can establish multiple INCLUSION ZONES to ensure that the enrollee is at a particular location for certain time periods (e.g. home, work, rehab), we can also establish EXCLUSION ZONES for areas the court orders the enrollee to avoid.

Intensive supervised release is most often continuous—24 hours per day, 365 days a year. Traditional RF, or house arrest, technology confirms the date and time enrollees enter and leave their home. We now have a better alternative to traditional RF technology with BLU+. This device provides traditional RF community supervision functionality with specific types of GPS functionality.

Electronic Monitoring Benefits:
Home detention or house arrest programs have the potential to reduce jail overcrowding, to be more cost-effective than incarceration, to provide a flexible sentencing alternative, to provide an immediate sanction, and to provide a greater social benefit than incarceration.
